I can see the menus on the lcd but I cannot see photos or videos while they are being taken and I cannot review the pictures either after the shot or from the memory stick. Is this the CCD problem again?
Tried resetting it, changing all the settings, etc, etc,

Your camera is working exactly as SLRs have worked for the first half-century since their invention. You frame the picture through the viewfinder then take the shot. The display is for menu settings and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Newer DSLRs will let you use the display for picture-taking (and take videos) but the A200 belongs to the previous generation.
Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button? The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.
Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece
to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing
pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.
there may be two reasons for this problem.
1. may be a defective or broken CCD.
2. the shutter is not working may be due to broken flex circuit cable. in any of the case you have to get it fixed from a professional camera repairer
